…Simon Corder turns the timber transparent, and through the eerie blue mists we watch a menacing dumb-show of murder. Claire Seymour, Opera Today, 11 June 2019

“The ball scene with its bloody denouement, powered with tremendous verve by Matthew Kofi Waldren in the pit, is a triumphant meld of lighting, design, and choreography, with Gaitanou’s direction never putting a foot wrong.” – Michael Church, The Independent, 9 June 2019
